J.K. Rowling shut down a man who told a new author that she, in fact, didn't write her debut book.
First-time author Laura Kalbag shared the news on Twitter that she had written her first novel when German typographer Erik Spiekermann responded with a dismissive tweet where he patronizingly attempted to explain to her how a book is published.
"Actually, you wrote a text," he tweeted. "It took a few other people & skills to make that into a book."
Rowling, never one to allow an example of sexism pass her by, consequently sent her congratulations to Kalbag, clarifying the finer points of making a book.
Spiekermann has since apologized for his comments, claiming that they were apparently ironic.
